Under.


Ricky gets eased in, Ronnie is playing well. Won't be many carries to share around in this game anyways.

If if had to pick one I'd say over at maybe 11-14. He should be running well, so my guess is he gets at least 30% of the carries. Just a stab at it.

Does this change Ricky's value at all?

Oct 11 With the return of Ricky Williams to the Dolphins' practice field, the team is trying to figure out how to best use both he and rookie running back Ronnie Brown. According to the Miami Herald, coach Nick Saban has been experimenting with a spread formation with one of the runners split out in the slot or a wide receiver position, and the other in the backfield. There are also plans to put both in the same backfield, in which Brown would likely play more of a strict fullback roll since he played a bit at that position in college and is a better receiver out of the backfield.
Views: We're sure to hear much conjecture as to how Williams and Brown will be used this week, but we're unlikely to know much until the team takes the field against the Bucs on Sunday. It sounds suspiciously like Brown will be the one switching to different positions and being used in the passing game, which is not surprising since Williams is much more of a north-south type runner who is more adept taking handoffs. With that said, Ricky will undoubtedly have some rust to work through and Brown has run too well in the last couple of weeks to lose too many carries. We'd bench both runners this week against the NFL's best run defense, and we'll certainly be keeping a close eye on the distribution of carries against the Buccaneers.

A week ago I'd have said under. But seeing what the Steelers did with Bettis in his first live action of the season Monday night, I'm thinking Saban won't want to waste a healthy resource.

Over, but barely.
